Excerpt

_The Northern Light_

Who drapes that mystic veil across that everbrooding sky? Who hues it with a soul of pearl? Who draws it to and fro? Who breathes upon it with the breath that makes it glow and die, Lighting that crystal river, those mountains cowl'd with snow?

_In Winter_

Beneath the snow the mosses sleep
Amid the forest's silence;
Above, the stately birches keep

Unbroken vigils.

The spruce trees dream of summer hours
And birds that carrolled sweetly,
Of gentle winds and smiling flowers

That died too quickly.

_Lyric_

Tell me, tell me, gentle stars,
Ever watchful, ever bright,
From your stations in the sky
Do you see my love to-night?
